CORONAVIRUS UPDATE, 9:00AM

On the Coronavirus status:

The total number of people tested positive for Hawaii Island is 16 with 5 recovered.  The remaining 11 are quarantined at home.

As a reminder, the Governor’s Proclamation of “Stay at Home” will remain in effect until April 30th.  This proclamation identifies what activities are prohibited outside the home or place of residence and what is allowed.  Do Call Civil Defense at 935-0031 for any clarification on the proclamation. 

We can all help stop the spread of this virus in our community, by following the “Stay at Home” guidelines, practicing good etiquette on coughing and sneezing.  Keeping areas clean and sanitized and for now, no handshakes, no hugs, no knuckle to knuckle.  Just say hi.

To all, do your part to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 Virus and help keep Hawaii Safe. 

A very, very, gracious thank you to doctors on this national doctor’s day.
